Various mono-N-substituted adenines are represented by the corresponding five possible isomers of Nx-methyladenine, namely, 9-methyladenine (2), 7-methyladenine (3), 3-methyladenine (4), 1-methyladenine (5), and N6-methyladenine (6). The chemistry, physicochemical properties, and biological activities of these Nx-methyladenines are reviewed with 366 reference citations.
